How to Restart when Remoted In via Remote Desktop?

Permalink

Many developers I've met have commented that you can't restart a machine that you're remoted into via Remote Desktop. You can, you just have to do so from the command line.

First open a command prompt window (If on Vista or Windows 7 make sure to run the command prompt as admin).

Next type: Shutdown /r

The "/r" means restart.

Restart a machine you're remoted into via Remote Desktop

That's it. The machine will now restart. Of course you'll lose your connnection to it and have to remote in again.
